What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 263

A new, improved edition that includes a photo, a short article and a Link list.  If you missed last week, well so did I.  Sorry about that.  Still, we're all still living and breathing and this is meant to be a bit of fun right? 
My desk seems to show an appropriate amount of my reflective mood.
The late Tuesday sunshine is reflecting very nicely thank you - lots of warmth into my room.  Which also means that at least to my eye, it shows how badly the windows need a good clean.  Sigh.  It also shows that even when I'm away for an extended period, my scissors are still used by someone.  See. I'm not the only one that doesn't put stuff away! The real reflection is  going on in the notebook..there are a lot of lists to be made so that some very genuine prioritising can be done.  Grown up.  Certainly.  But not as scarey grown up as the thought that one of those lists will involve Christmas Card Marathon preparations! There. I said it.
So join in with your far more exciting workspace revelations will ya?  Some of us (OK, me) need a real and vital injection of enthusiasm and inspiration...and its usually to be found at your place.

Welcome back Julia - you gave us quite a scare last week when you missed your own party!

I hope you are better now. I went thru GBS several years ago - it truly stops you in your tracks!

Love the reflective desk today. Have a wonderful week!

Granmargaret said...

Thank you for sharing. Love your view out the window. Lovely sunny area.

RosA said...

So pleased you are home and on the mend! You were missed, but, as you said, nothing fell apart at the seams :)
You might be making Christmas Card plans, I might even whip up a few for "Christmas in July" but I can't contemplate any genuine, December type Christmas cards :)
Take care,
RosA # 7

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm so glad you are back and feeling chipper enough to post this week. I think you had MANY of us worried, especially when Jan told us you were in hospital in a strange land.

I'm not playing this week. I've got too many irons in the fire and I'm helping my friend with her hoarder problems, which constitutes most of the daylight hours. But I wanted to stop by and check in, none-the-less.

Helen said...

So glad you're back with us, at home, safe and recovering! Good to see a desk too. Happy WOYWW.. xx

peggy apl said...

So, so glad you are well enough to host WOYWW! We were quite concerned about your trip to the hospital! Happy WOYWW!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Ah, Julia, great minds! I've just uploaded and you will see that the sunshine also was my enemy in the revelation of dirty windows and so I made that part of my dialogue! I hope you don't rush into things, dear. Take the time to heal properly and be pampered for a bit. Love, Mom (Darnell #14)

Lynda Beazley said...

Hi Julia So glad you are feeling better and thinking about Christmas! I too had a sneaky idea last friday about the very same thing whilst eating ice cream in the garden. Life is strange isn't it? Glad you are home and safe
Have a happy week!

Glad you are back at your desk.

I love scanning your photos to see what I can find.

Hope everyone has a fab WOYWW. Sue

Neet said...

Nice to have you back - you really got me in a spin last week. Thank goodness I thought of LLJ later on but how I wish my brain had worked a bit sooner. Anyhow, you are with us today and the sun is shining, hopefully, though not quite as much as in Spain. Hope you get another holiday soon as most of your other one was spent in a hospital bed. Not fair!
Take care, rest and enjoy now
Hugs, Neet xx
ps Bugga the windows!

Annie said...

Yes of course we managed while you were away but the clue is there in the word...'managed'. You were really missed and I know for sure everyone is glad you're now home and on the mend. [you will go for these 'white knuckle ride' type hols!].
Biggest healing hugs,
Annie x

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I'm so happy to see your desk again! And you too :-)
Love ya, xxxx

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia, lovely to see you back, hope you are mending nicely. Dirty window syndrome is everywhere- I swear if I cleaned mine I'd get an extra couple of hours of daylight! Just been to Tesco, off to have a decaff and some cereal, then bed. I'll catch everyone later, Huge hugs from us both, xxx

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

ah, Julia, dear head-desker, nice to have things back in their proper order again.. still we managed quite okay in the end..

.... once we knew you were okay :D thanks to Lunch Lady Jan and the modern conveniences of phones, etc.Glad to see your desk and scissors and windows needing a clean..
I am bit late for it as it was such an unexpected day.. it is days end here y'see, and somehow all that crafting and catch up I was to do do today resulted in zilch, zero done.. .. why is that now? folks calling etc phone calls and such... but all essential in their own way, am off to catch up with few desks, before must get tea ready, Shaz in oz.x #31 I think..

Robyn said...

Living and breathing is good! So is reflection. One year I gave up making lists for Lent- a story for another post!
Please go back and look at last weeks post if you haven't already. You should know you have been an inspiration to us all!
Glad you are back- you were missed!
Blessings,
Robyn 32

misteejay said...

Don't you dare even think about cleaning those windows!!!

Lovely to have you back but you are supposed to take things easy so no swinging from the light bulbs to take photos or cleaning windows...list making is okay though.

scrappystickyinkymess said...

My iPad wouldn't cooperate this morning so I had to wait till I got to my desk to comment. Does this mean you are back home? Taking it easy, I hope. I'm trying to clear the decks for the crop on the 28th, if it happens - will you be well enough to attend? If so, I'll make DH cancel any plans so I can make it for sure. :) I'm guessing you must be feeling better if you are working on a Marathon, even if it is just a CARD one LOL!

Don't overdo it! The gall of that gall bladder, ruining your holiday....

Mrs.D said...

So pleased to have you back Julia. Take it easy for a few days, those lists can wait a while until you are fully fit.
Bless you

Paula Gale said...

Hey Julia, hope you had a good time away and that you refective mood is not post holiday blues. I could do with one myself, ive got 'no holiday' blues. Lol.

The sunlight streaming in looks warm and inviting and at least your windows don't have nose and tongue marks all over like mine - that's fur babies for you... noses instead of hands and fingers from kids!!

Hapoy WOYWW to you, so glad im back too

Diane Baker-Williams said...

So glad you are well! We did miss you. Many of us visited desks last week but it simply wasn't the same without you! What is a Christmas card marathon????

Fuzzie Fingers said...

Sorry Julia I posted the wrong link first off the second link is the correct one. Welcome back!

Angela Radford said...

Hi Julia, pleased to see you are in the mood to even look at your desk.
I try not to look at the windows as my husband cleans them, his philosophy is that he cleans them twise a year need it or not!!
Take it easy girl and happy crafting when you feel inclined,

Glad to see your work desk again. May you be filled with all kinds of creative ideas for your Christmas cards. Blessings!

Christine said...

Sorry, no inspiration on my desk - plenty of mess, will that do?
So glad you are back safe and sound after your 'adventures', not one you would like to repeat!
I do not like the C word that seems to be appearing in conversations lately.....
Other than that WELCOME BACK and so sorry you missed the party last week. Some of us just carried on!!!

Winnie said...

Wow, Christmas card prep in June! I bow to you, as I tell myself I am going to do that each year, and then the very oppressive heat hits and I can't think of Christmas cards..ha ha.. Glad you are feeling better!!! Winnie#50

Welcome Home...so glad you had some time away, and hoping you are feeling terrific. My love for the Window, makes me wonder if I'd create more...however we are lucky to have electricity. Mother Nature has had 2 days of intense storms, pretty much live in the basement at night. More forcast for today. Enjoy your day. And thanks for WOYWW

betsy (pharmgirl) said...

Julia - your desk looks so peaceful! Everyone needs to reflect - now and then!

Carole said...

Julia, I'm sure happy to hear you are on the mend. Sometimes we celebrate and appreciate feeling normal, especially after such trauma. Be well Carole #65

Julia, sorry your Holiday was not as expected. Glad you are ok and on the mend. Brigita #60

Krisha said...

Welcome home Julia.

trisha too said...

Glad you're home safe and sound-- albeit minus an organ . . .

What a holiday you had!

:)

Sandy Leigh said...

Julia, I hope you are comfortable and recovering well. Obviously, we were all worried about you! I never dreamed I'd be worrying about some English lady across the ocean that I've never met! (other than Princess Diana, and that didn't turn out well) But you truly are our Princess of the Work Desk and you are loved and cherished by many friends near you and far away. Glad that old gall thing is gone!! Big hugs, and I love your lists--I'm in a list making mood this week too. Hugs. Sandy Leigh

Amy E said...

YAY! So glad to see that you're back and up to sitting at your desk Julia! I missed it AND you last week!

I wish I had an excuse when my scissors don't get put away. I'm the only one who comes into my craft room so I have to take the blame...unless maybe I can blame it on the dogs? Yeah...I think I'll try that next time!

Happy WOYWW!

Hi Julia, so nice to see you back, you gave us a bit of a shock there my dear. I hope you are recovering nicely and taking it easy. Ah, Christmas ... hard to think of while basking in temperatures in the high 70s but needs must :) Have a restful week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #69

Hello!

I hope that you are now feeling better - how scary to have that happen when in another country! Wishing you a speedy recovery! Take care.

Welcome back, Julia! You were missed, sweetie.
